If your carpets or rugs are going to be rolled and stored for any length of time, they need to be properly prepared and wrapped to prevent damage, mould and mildew, insect attack and other issues.


Carpets and rugs should only be rolled in the correct direction to prevent damage to the foundation fibres and pile and once rolled, should not be placed on the floor. It is also unwise to store carpets in a dirty condition, so dry soil removal prior to storage is advisable.
